Manuel-CastilloAmong several questions floating around is that of Manuel Castillo’s whereabouts and now his safety following his bold move to call the family. The media in Mexico has even picked up on the recent developments surrounding the case and allege that they have received information that Castillo has been sighted in the southern part of the country. Cervantes says since they received the call, they have not been in contact with Castillo or know about his location.

“We have heard that Manuel is spotted here even in Belize whether it is true I can’t speak to that, I can’t say for sure then, I can’t tell if he has been spotted or not.”

Then there are the rumors that the family is hiding more than what they are sharing with the public, specifically additional proof into homicide. When asked, this is what Cervantes answered.


"The perception is that you are withholding and gradually releasing. Do you have anything else that could assist the police that you are withholding at this time?"

"I wouldn't want to say yes or no. As time goes by anything could become evidence. I wouldn't want to say yes or no.”


The family of Ramon Cervantes Senior has indicated that the conversation between his wife, Vilma Cervantes and whom they are convinced is Manuel Castillo was recorded on October 8th. As we have reported, the caller had promised to get evidence to the Cervantes family that proved what had occurred to the victim and who was involved. Almost one month after the family says they have not received anything. Also in the recording the caller pleads to Mrs. Cervantes to remain silent on the matter but the family has divulged the information to the entire nation. The media asked Cervantes if, following their decision, they feel they had jeopardized the outcome of the case.

"I don't think so. As I said at the press conference I think it is no more than ever it is in his interest to come with all the evidence that he has. The purpose of all this is to get the truth you know we are not here to crucify anyone, to go after anyone this is to find the truth what we want we have said it we want the truth and then we want justice that is what our case is all about.”
